TerraMai Reclaimed Woods took home two awards earlier this year at the NeoCon gathering –North America’s largest design exposition and conference for commercial interiors. TerraMai’s Lost Coast Redwood – Weathered Paneling took home the Best of NeoCon – Gold award in the Wall Treatments category and Interior Design’s HiP Workplace Wall Coverings award honoring commercial industry pioneers and achievement in design solutions and product applications.
According to conference organizers, “The Best of NeoCon honors new commercial interior products. 50 jurors who are interior designers, architects, and facilities management professionals reviewed 380 product entries within 22 hours over three days before NeoCon begins.”
Terra Mai sources its redwood from various structures in the San Francisco Bay Area, and describes its sourcing for other wood products as:
Post-Consumer Reclaimed – factory and commercial buildings, houses, tanks, barns, bleacher seats, etc.
Water Recovered Reclaimed – standing forests flooded decades ago to create reservoirs, as well as sinker logs
Post-Industrial Reclaimed – off-cuts from an industrial process, such as veneer or furniture making, that are typically sent to the landfill or burned
Orchard Salvage Reclaimed – acacia, walnut and other trees that are no longer productive and need to be replaced
TerraMai describes its Lost Coast Redwood – Weathered as, “a great design tool. Its entire color palette can be utilized or it can be sorted for just greys or browns. The wood comes in several widths (3”, 4”, 5” & 7”), and you can achieve a variety of looks with these color and size options. Select one width or get creative and choose multiple widths for added interest. If you'd like darker, richer tones, choose a natural clear oil finish, or add a custom color and some light skip sanding for a tailored look.”
